New thermomix Jars
« on: May 03, 2013, 04:27:15 am »
These do look nice...and I do like the carry case....and I can think of many uses...but I don't think I like the price...



They are on the Thermomix Australia website http://www.thermomix.com.au/products/thermomix-accessories/6982-thermojar-set.aspx
I have a Facebook page with all things cooking, you'll find it here: https://www.facebook.com/What-Amber-Ate-1097437023601587/

A bit dear for 6 bottles, a white case would get grubby.

Yes, they do look pretty, but not pretty enough for that price!  Easy enough just to resuse bottles or buy some for a couple of dollars.

I agree. I'll keep saving my old jars and use those, it doesn't matter if they are returned to me then.
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.

I think they are cute but not overly practical. I can't think when I would ever have wanted to take 6 small jars with spoons and forks out with me.

LOL, Wonder - I thought the same thing. When they say the uses are endless, I was scratching my head , maybe I went too blonde at the hairdressers yesterday?? Even when my children were babies and toddlers, I wouldn't have taken 6 jars or bottles with us.  ;D

Maybe the blonde is the problem - I'm platinum blonde at the moment!

I was also thinking back to when the kids were small and couldn't think of a single time I would have thought they would come in handy.

The new jars and bottles are really cute, but I can't imagine why anyone would need to take 6 jars of baby food anywhere! It's all to do with the new book that's come out - Cooking for your Baby and Toddler. It's a good idea, but needed a bit more thought to make it practical. Mum's would only take probably two meals out for a day. Jars are heavy, so not particularly practical.
A great cook is one who can rustle up a fabulous family meal with some freezer burnt chops, wilted carrots, sprouting potatoes and cabbage that's gone brown on the cut edges.

If the jars were bigger they could be used for jams or sauces - but I think I will stick to recycling my jars for now.  But I do love the pretty lids!
